Guilty plea in postmaster's stamp theft
Prosecutors say a former postmaster has pleaded guilty to stealing nearly $60,000 in stamps from the post office where he worked.
Fifty-six-year-old Gilbert Ennis of Lanham entered the plea Tuesday. He will be sentenced Dec. 6 and has agreed to pay restitution from his federal retirement account.
According to his plea agreement, on Nov. 23, Ennis reported an armed gunman had entered the post office when he was working there alone, demanded he open the safe and ordered Ennis into a bathroom.
Ennis told authorities that a box in the safe that held more than $50,000 in stamps was stolen.
Investigators found the box in Ennis' car and that nearly $2,000 worth of stamps were missing from his drawer.
